Ok, I took the .44 Special Triple Lock out this afternoon for a tryout. I was worried since the gun is so old (I had also noticed a slight spot of flame cutting that's not too deep). I loaded up some Lyman 250 grain #429421 bullets with 6.0 grains of Unique. As you can see from the target, which was set at 20 yards, the old hogleg isn't too bad. I could barely see the front sight down the end of the barrel. The chronograph was giving me around 685-700 fps for the load, and I have no interest in pushing it any farther. No too bad for a gun made before Panch Villa became famous.
